Grab the maple syrup, dress yourself in red, and head to the Surrey Canada Day celebration that’s set to throw this great nation one heck of a 149th birthday party!
Western Canada’s biggest Canada Day festival has A LOT going on, whether you’ve got a junior Canuck, or you’ve celebrated many Canada Days in your time, there’s something to peak your interest. From amusement rides, to Science World on the road, Storyville to Strawberry Teas, there’s a little something for everyone.
Arguably the biggest crowd-pleasers at this annual event are the amazing Canadian performers who hit the main stage throughout the day. Almost every genre will be represented on the day, from country music acts like Lanie McAuley, to Bhangra dancers and performers, no matter what genre you lean towards, your new favourite artist will be hitting the stage. Indie rock band The Dudes, singer-songwriter Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, neo-seoul artist Kristie McCracken, fiddle player and singer Jocelyn Pettit, folk singer Ginalina, and many more will perform throughout the day.
